Key Lime Mojito Ice Pops (5 Ingredients)

What’s more refreshing than a Mojito?… a Mojito Ice Pop! I couldn’t help but turn my favorite adult beverage into a sophisticated yet easy frozen dessert. Smooth, creamy, limey, and perfectly minty – these Ice Pops will make your tongue do cart wheels in your mouth!

Key Lime Mojito Popsicles

These Key Lime Mojito Ice Pops are one of my two entries into the “Sweet” category of the So Delicious and Go Dairy Free Snackable Recipe Contest. You can probably imagine my excitement for creating them. Not only do I get to happily enjoy ice pops during recipe testing, I also get to enter them into a fabulous recipe contest and potentially win amazing prizes. Fun!Snackable Recipe Contest Badge

These ice pops are so easy to make. With only five ingredients, a blender, and a popsicle mold you can have fresh, cool (pun intended), and delicious ice pops. They work great for outdoor dinner parties, picnics, and cocktail parties. You could also keep them all to yourself and not share a single one. It’s really up to you, but if you share you might make more friends.

If you’re not a fan of rum or you feel the need to share with the kids you can replace the 1/4 cup white rum with sprite (flattened).

Creamy Key Lime Mojito PopsiclesINGREDIENTS:
1 1/4 cup So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk
1/4 cup white rum (or gf vodka or flattened sprite for alcohol free)
1/4 cup key lime juice
15-20 mint leaves
1/4 tsp sea salt

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend for 30 seconds. Pour evenly into a six-serving popsicle mold. Freeze for at least six hours or until set up. When ready to serve run the popsicle mold under warm water until the Key Lime Mojito Ice Pop releases from the mold. Store in the freezer until you are ready to enjoy.

Tropical Mango Cooler (5 Ingredients)

My family and I love tropical places (who doesn’t?). Anytime we have the opportunity to travel to someplace warm and tropical we try to eat as much of the local produce as possible. These past few weeks we have been dreaming of Hawaii and with that we have been craving mango’s. I had never used mango in a smoothie until recently and let me tell you – I AM HOOKED! Blend some frozen mango chunks with So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk and lime juice and you have an amazing and inviting beverage that pulls you right into that happy vacation feeling. It’s simple and it’s healthy. Dairy Free Tropical Mango Cooler I developed this dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, and food allergy-friendly tropical mango cooler just for you. I wanted you to sip it and feel relaxed. This creamy, smooth, and refreshing tropical beverage is an entry in the “Sippable” category of the So Delicious and Go Dairy Free Snackable Recipe Contest and a new favorite in our house. Enjoy!Snackable Recipe Contest Badge

Product Review: Hey Gluten Free Food Box

Recently I was contacted by Hey Gluten Free and asked to review their food box. They are a new gluten-free food box subscription service. Every month they select gluten free products, pack them in a box, and ship them straight to your door. You will receive 7-10 full-sized products and each month you get something new.
